Boatbuilding students and instructor


Each year, 40% of IYRS students count on scholarship support to fund their education at IYRS. Donors may contribute to the Joyce Selig Scholarship Fund which provides current-year support to IYRS students based on financial need. IYRS also encourages donations to endowed funds, which pay out a percentage each year to guarantee scholarship funding in perpetuity.
